By 9am this morning, I was thinking "Okay. So it's just one of those days."
We'd had tears. Squabbles. Grumps. Not just from one but from all three of the children. And, I admit, from me too. Sometimes it just happens. Not often, but sometimes. And I really really dislike it when it does.
I have a tendency to get filled with doubt on a day like today. I have to really fight to regain the joy, to see the light, to remember that not every day is like this!!! I tend to beat myself up too, emotionally. I point the finger at myself, blame myself, etc. Then I stop and tell myself it's okay, tomorrow will be better, our family is fine, I am doing fine. Everyone has doubts and bad days sometimes. Tell me I'm right, friends?
I want to be real on my blog so I do share when I've had a rough day. But. I also like to share the joys! So........ here are the 4 Best Bits of my morning. There are always good bits on any day, right?!
A stack of brand new books on my kitchen counter, ready to be read!
Fresh produce from the markets this morning
A bowl full of citrus on the dining table...... the smell is divine!
My girl with a smile on her face, bike riding after lunch. So much happier than this morning.....
"Love comforteth like sunshine after rain." William Shakespeare.
My little ones are safe, we have each other, we are off to the park to play tennis with friends this afternoon...... lots of blessings, life is good!
